LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) – The Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and Spalding University have signed an agreement, called a Pathway Agreement, for the two universities to allow Spalding students to complete Sullivan’s pharmacy program at a faster pace while completing their Bachelor of Science degree at Spalding.
Spalding University students who are studying natural sciences and are on a pre-pharmacy track can transfer to Sullivan after three years at Spalding. After one year of Sullivan’s fast-tracked Pharm.D. program, the students can transfer those credit hours back to Spalding for completion of their Bachelor of Science degree.
"While this program does not currently guarantee admission into the Sullivan Pharm. D. program, we have found the students that attend Spalding University are highly competitive candidates for admission into our program," Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences Associate Dean of Student Affairs Dr. Dale English said.
This agreement specifically applies to natural science students who leave Spalding before they earn their bachelor’s degree, typically after three years.
The benefit of this agreement to students is the ability to complete a Pharm.D. degree up to two years faster than a more traditional academic path.
